Loaded Potato Mini Hand Pies

Move over girlscouts camp fire these are better than making smores the old way. Hubby loved them and will make these again!

Just next time, I will get one more pie crust, as I had alot of the left over topping to go on them.
These were a fun treat. If you slather on the butter then pour graham crumbs over it, tapping off the extra they’ll stick fine. Don’t add extra chocolate chips as I did, we found it to be too chocolaty. Bummed it wasn’t all gooey inside, in fact the marshmallow creme sort of disappeared, leaving the cream cheese.

We loved the (homemade) crust with the graham crumbs though.This is an awesome snack but it doesn’t make very much, I am going to be doubling this recipe and I think it will be a huge hit with the students at my school.

 

 

Everyone loved these & have requested that I bring them for the next family gathering! . These were delicious! I had a hard time getting the graham cracker crumbles to stick to the outside though…

I made these & brought them to work. They were a hit. EVERYONE wanted more!! The only thing I did different.  was add a bit more chocolate chips & about a tsp of vanilla. They are super easy to make. Will be making these again!

Directions:

Place bacon in a nonstick pan and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until fat begins to render, about 3 minutes. Add green onions and cook until bacon is crisp, about 1 minute more. Transfer to a plate using a slotted spoon.
Add potatoes to the same pan and stir to coat with bacon grease. Cook over medium-high heat for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep them from sticking. Remove from heat and cover with a lid. Let cool.
Stir bacon and green onions into the cooled potatoes; add Cheddar cheese and sour cream. Season with pepper.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Unroll pie crusts on a flat work surface. Cut out 24 circles using a 3-inch biscuit cutter or glass. Place a spoonful of the potato filling in the center of 12 of the circles, keeping the filling away from the edge of the dough. Cover with remaining circles, pressing tops down lightly.
Pick up a hand pie and pinch the edges together to seal. Return to the work surface and use a fork to crimp the edges together. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining pies.
Brush beaten egg over the pies using a pastry brush.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.
